Make Your Hair Wet

Start by making your hair wet. This step is essential because it helps to open up the hair cuticles, allowing the cleanser to penetrate deeply, spread evenly and cleanse effectively. 

Apply Hair Cleanser

Take a dollop of hair cleanser (according to the length of your hair) on your palm. Gently massage the cleanser into your scalp and hair, focusing on the roots and working your way to the ends. 

Massage to work up a light lather

While applying the cleanser, massage your scalp gently in circular motions using your fingertips. This helps to stimulate blood flow and thoroughly cleanse your scalp to remove dirt, oil, and product buildup.


Once you’ve massaged the cleanser into your hair and scalp, rinse it thoroughly with lukewarm water. Make sure to rinse until all the cleanser is washed out of your hair.

Repeat (If Needed)

Sometimes, especially if you have oily hair, one round of hair cleanser use may not be sufficient. Repeating the process ensures that your hair is thoroughly cleaned and refreshed.
